The ecology of the SOUL for an updated perspective on politics and politicians

In the modern society, an increasing powerful trend is the discovery of the new dimension of life that is happening inside the human being. There is an entire new world inward and we can say without mistaking that the opening of these new dimensions of human experience and understanding is similar if not bigger to the discovery of the New World in the 15th  century.

For the understanding of many people nowadays, the activity of the “inside” is un-doubtfully becoming more important in the daily life. In fact it was always important but we didn’t pay attention to it because we were “busy” with other things in the outer world. But now we are more aware about the impact the “inside” world has over the decisions and the life we have “outside”. Lets remember that even though everybody has thoughts almost continuously in the awake state, no medical institution was able yet to trace precisely any of the thoughts in the physical brain. Even more obvious are happening the things with the feelings and emotions. Everybody is acting in many moments of life according to the feelings and to the so-called “heart”. But despite the fact the anyone of us was using at least once in life the expression “This is what I feel” or “I love you” or “You break my heart”, nobody was able yet to identify the centre of these phenomena inside of our being. Such large extent phenomena were used only to “decorate” our life. Yet now when we are trying to put light in many issues of our life, we must take more serious into consideration these mentioned issues. They influence the life of each of us and therefore the life of the whole society thus the work for a better society will become meaningless out of the integration of topics like Soul, heart, feelings, emotions…

One of the first important ideas in this concern is that the ones that are shaping the life of the community must understand that these new dimensions are becoming more and more important not because they are developing now (in fact they were developed already but just now they are coming to the “surface” of our awareness) but because ignoring them, on the background of losing the spiritual values is leading to many side effects that now we are aware of. The decisions that we are taking now together with some of our actions are sometimes going against our deep inner needs and they are damaging the deepness of our being. Ignoring in most of the cases the “inside”, the “Soul”, is exposing us to repeat the same story like with the ecology some decades ago: before the industrial revolution it was meaningless even to talk about ecology. The term itself didn’t make sense.

But after the environment was poisoned by the irresponsible actions of the industrial society, the ecology became a must and it was reflected immediately in the political level by the apparition of the “greens”. Are the ecological commandments so complicated that decades ago we couldn’t understand them? Definitely not! It is just our awareness on certain subjects that was “forced” to increase by the events that occurred. Taking into consideration these facts we should not wait till the ecology of the Soul will become a must. One should learn from history.We are racing to increase the impact of our advertising on people seen as target-groups but we ignore the tremendous effect which this advertising bombardment is having upon our souls and our inner development. We are striving to reach a high-speed rate of information and communication creating in this way a genuine informational storm around ourselves. We don’t pay attention on the mutations that these information storms are generating gradually in our mind and our souls. We make movies with more and more power of impact, which are playing with our emotions, ignoring the consequences of this complex game upon our destiny. How can we avoid all these, if not first of all becoming aware of the areas that we unconsciously damage?

The politics of the body

Most of our concern in nowadays is oriented towards the needs of the physical body. Therefore in the immense majority of the cases, the politicians are focusing their attention and thus their decisions towards fulfilling these needs. Busy of being focused almost exclusively upon the body needs, the modern politics doesn’t represent at all the aspects concerning the Soul needs. We are more preoccupied about increasing the annual income then about the fact that the average duration of the couple relationships is dramatically decreasing. We are more interested about what we eat at the Christmas dinner then about the spiritual meaning of this celebration.

We care too much about our own selfish materialistic interests that we almost forgot generosity and love. Blinded by the aggressive marketing and consume society, pushing us to accomplish more desires, we are getting more and more distanced from our real needs of our heart As a conclusion we may say that the politicians nowadays are working on increasing the precipice between our Soul inner life and needs, and the outside layer of gross desires by urging our materialistic needs. Thus they create a system for serving rather body needs than Soul necessities.The Indian J. Krishnamurti was clear about the limitations of this we call body-politics when he stated that the problem for contemporary man is spiritual and all solutions offered by a system that is not spiritual in its core, will not solve anything. Probably it will only make things worse.Krishnamurti was very precise in his criticism on politics, but weak in solutions. The solution is not to wait passively for the society to ‘wake up’, hiding in a safe place, until things will change by themselves. The solution is to participate in the ongoing, present process where society is being shaped creating what we have called here “politics of the Soul”.

Politics of the Soul for a “Soul ecologic environment”

For many years we have been fighting for the ecology of the physical nature. For a pure and unspoiled nature. Now the time has come to fight for the soul and to make society ‘soul-ecological’! This means to build a society where the soul is preserved and appreciated. If The Greens where the ones taking care on ecology of the physical environment, The Blues will be the one representing the Soul ecological environmentPolitics of the soul therefore implies that the practitioners (Soul politicians – The Blues) stand strongly on certain principles.

The principles are:
Each of them is an intimate knower of his own Soul.
For any of The Blues the universal morality will be a code for the daily life.
The Blue is starting the transformation of the entire world beginning with himself.
Knowing his soul in its most intimate aspects, The Blue is prioritising properly the needs of the soul correlated with material needs.
The Blue has to know the immense, the subtle impact of most of our actions in physical world, thus being able to represent properly our Soul.In order to build all these, the first step is to become aware of the Soul increased importance in our society and in our individual daily life. Once we will accomplish that, we will be able to ask for a new level of representation in the political process, representation which was named before: The Blue. We have now the chance to prevent rather then cure the effects of our carelessness. This will be a sign that we have learned from the past and we are mature enough for the future.
